OneRepublic's "Stop and Stare" is a mesmerizing little hit. Even the accompanying music video, in which Ryan Tedder is contemplating birth and death, is equally hypnotic. The lyrics seem trite with "stop and stare/ I'm going but I don't know where." On the surface, it's uncreative, but it's a threnody. The rhythm, along with Ryan's melancholy singing, draws you in.

"Stop and Stare" is serious for a pop song. It's not the usual "why don't you love me?" or "let's make love" let alone the "you don't love me,so I'm angry." It's about being reflective, and the problems of the unexamined life. Philosophical,for a pop song. On a less serious note, it should be used for making tribute videos to actors whose style consists of blank looks.

OneRepublic's current phenomenon, "Stop and Stare" which seems like it's fixin' to crack the top 10 of the carts, and for good reason. The song has a very nice structure, starting off slow, before building up to, and taking off at the chorus in an unexpectedly amazing effort, that could be the highlight of their CD. The song also works surprisingly great in a totally acoustic form, as well as its original modern/alt rock form.

So overall, a great song from a great band, and certainly one of their, if not their best song. Now support the band, and bring this song to the top of the charts!

Great song! One of several wonderful tunes by OneRepublic. Vibrant rhythms, great lyrics. This song was featured at the end of an early Castle episode.

I heard this song when some girl made it through to Hollywood on this season of American Idol, and I wanted to know what it was called so I can download it. I found it and it's a very good track from this band. 5/5

Love this song! Very thought provoking. Can't believe it was released in 2007 and I am just now learning about it. OneRepublic has a way with a melody.

This always brings back memories of the crushes I've had on male celebrities, personally, especially the music videos I used to watch.
